National Review Nails It! Francis is a HUGE problem

As further evidence of our ongoing contention that there's a worldwide awakening going on where Pope Francis is concerned, even the National Review is recognizing the massive infiltration of the Catholic Church that is the Francis pontificate.

The following excerpts come from a National Review article titled, Pope Francis, Wayward Shepherd:

“As the estimable Father Raymond J. de Souza pointed out in the November 28, 2019, issue of the Catholic Herald, Pope Francis has a soft spot for leftist leaders who oppress civil society in the name of social justice and solidarity with the poor...

“The Church is literally becoming secular, obsessed with political and social matters far beyond its competence. As the courageous Kazakh bishop Athanasius Schneider suggests in his new book, Christus Vincit: Christ’s Triumph over the Darkness of the Age, Pope Francis mainly attends to secular issues — climate change, the environment (right down to the proper disposal of plastic), immigration — and does so in an “exaggerated manner.” This “frenzied activism,” as Schneider calls it, crowds out concern for the life of the soul and the “supernatural realities” of grace, prayer, and penance.”

We don’t typically love to send our readers away from this site, but you should probably go read the rest of the article at NationalReview.com right now.
